    Default diesel dual fuel

    i currently run four diesel vans for my buisness and have heard that deisel dual fuel (diesel + lpg) is a serious performance enhancer. have heard that a 120 hp mercedes sprinter increases power up to 190 hp with a potential 10mpg increase and an enormous reduction in harmful exhast emissions. is this so and if it is where do you get them. has anyone fitted this system to an oil burnig veccy.

    If you will be runing your vans on lpg your Hp will be around 5-10% lower, and mpg 10-30% lower aswell

    a company claims that adding a small quantity of lpg to the diesel engine along with the diesel acts in the same manner as injecting nitrous into a petrol. a variable ammount is injected 5% at low speeds and up to 30% at higher speeds.
    thus increasing engine power buy 20 to 40%. also increases torque, their claim of increased fuel consumption is based on driving in the same manner as before the modification allowing the extra power to operate engine more easily therefore saving fuel. but biggest difference is in the drop of harmful emmisions.
    would just like to know if anyone has actualy experienced this system first hand

    Something makes me wonder why every bus and transport company in UK, Europe and USA hasn't done this already???

    I just can't think what it is..............

    Well for public transport there would be no point. before tax i believe petrol and diesel are cheaper than lpg. So with a limited market would anyone bother to set up a business doing conversions?

    yes its been done befor
    its just the cost factor for fitting lpg to the car,,, ie its not cheap

    i was given a price of 1600 + vat

    then you still have to buy diesel and lpg
    think how many miles you will have to do just to break even
    you will prob sell yourcar befor breaking even on the cost

    but the performance
    30% on anything you have done mmmmmmm
    cdti 150 bhp then chip it about 200 bhp
    200 bhp then lpg + 30% = 260 mmmmmmmm

    what if you go the hole hog
    give your car to 888
    larger turbo and intercooler and the chip 240 bhp
    then lpg now we are really talking fast car time
    you may be looking at the otherside of 300 bhp from a 1.9 cdti
    the pull on the motorway would be like a train
    a vxr wouldnt stand a chance with it not a hope in hells chance


    sh?t a brick out of clarkson time
